2 Kings 10-12, Ephesians 2
15He made of no effect the law consisting of commands and expressed in regulations, so that He might create in Himself one new man from the two, resulting in peace. 16He did this so that He might reconcile both to God in one body through the cross and put the hostility to death by it.
This passage on unity and a new humanity is so powerful after reading about the split and the downfall of Judah and Israel. God originally created them to be one people, but they were so far off track, that only something with the magnitude of Christ’s life and death could have brought them back together. Thankful that we, too, are included in this now!
“19So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,”
We are already citizens of heaven. We don’t have to wait to be a part of the Kingdom of Heaven. I’m so thankful we belong to such a kingdom, that our hope can be established in Christ now and forever.
